The Marco 5 SMG is an extremely proficient weapon, and here are the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment to create the best Marco 5 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 5.

Ever since its arrival in the Season 4 Battle Pass, the Marco 5 SMG won over Warzone Pacific players with its extremely fast TTK. Now, the weapon has been nerfed in the Season 5 update.

Despite this, it remains one of the most popular guns in the game. You can equip the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment to make the best Marco 5 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 5.

Best Warzone Marco 5 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Perfetto Lesto 355mm
  • Stock: Imerito FR
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 8mm Nambu 64 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Subsonic
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Momentum
  • Perk 2: Quick

We’ll start off this Warzone Pacific loadout by improving the SMG’s hip-fire accuracy and recoil control with the help of the Recoil Booster muzzle and Taped Grip rear grip.

We went with the 8mm Nambu 64 Round Drums, and the Subsonic ammunition type ensures that your shots don’t ping on enemy minimaps. The Perfetto Lesto 355mm barrel, Mark VI Skeletal underbarrel, and Imerito FR stock will boost your movement speed.

The Slate Reflector is an unobtrusive and reliable optic choice. Momentum increases your movement speed after getting kills. Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the Quick kit to buff your mobility by increasing your sprint speed.

Best Warzone Marco 5 Perks & Equipment

E.O.D Perk in Warzone Pacific
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Enemies will throw Grenades and Thermites your way in close-range combat, so you should equip the E.O.D Perk to make you resistant to explosive damage. Overkill will allow you to pair this SMG with a long-range option like the STG44.

Our final Perk choice is Amped, and this lets you quickly swap between weapons. The Semtex dishes out explosive damage to multiple targets, and Stims will provide you with a health and speed boost.
